Head Start Gift Box Drive Through Nov. 28

It’s almost time for COAR’s annual Head Start Gift Box Drive. Each year we ask students, faculty and staff to fill boxes full of necessities and toys for children ages 3 to 5 years old.

These are distributed to the Head Start programs in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania schools.

To participate, come by the University Center and check out a gift box through Nov. 28 and return them by Nov. 29.

If you are unable to check out a box, donations of the following individual items would be appreciated as well:

  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Small toys
  • Coloring books
  • Crayons and markers
  • Small books

All of these items will need to fit inside a shoe box sized box. We appreciate your continued support for service at UMW.
